is recognized for five minutes. mr. fattah: the congress of the united states in a bipartisan vote passed the energy independence and security act of 2007. it was signed into law by president bush. it just suggests that in federal procurement when we seek an energy that the department should use, energy efficient sources, so that we don't rely on unnecessary middle eastern supplies for oil, this removes this requirement. so i hope we would vote against it. this has been a part of the law for a number of years now and has helped save taxpayers money. so i would ask for a no vote on the amendment. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman yield back? -- the chair: does the gentleman yield back? mr. fattah: i'd be glad to yield. mr. dicks: this is an effort to overturn a law that was passed in 2007 that says -- try to do the most energy efficient approach to running the government. i mean, i think -- mr. flores: if the gentleman will yield? mr. dicks: i think it's common sense and i urge a no vote on the amendment. the chair: does the gentleman yield his time? mr. fattah: i'd be glad to yi

for individuals who immigrate to the united states on fiance visa and subjected to an abusive relationship. not only does the house bill miss these opportunities but it would remove the current accountality agreement for protections who still have immigrant status. it would inexplicablely reduce violence reporting requirements on colleges and universities. these are all tools widely used and supported by law enforcement officials to help keep communities safe by prosecuting criminals and protecting victims. the house bill would decentralize the violence against women immigration adjudication process, bypassing examiners who are trained in domestic violence and sexual assault instead mandating additional interviews on battered immigrants. these are people who usually have very limited options to protect themselves. we should not complicate the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the united states. these victims of violence, usually women in the most difficult of circumstances, will be burdened, hindered and discouraged from seek
